WSGM – Hankat & ZZed Bias / Maddslinky Free Download Remix

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on July 18, 2013 by E.N.

When Saints Go Machine - IodineHankat brings a deeper flavour to Iodine, laying the vocals effortlessly over a sped-up house groove creating a somewhat dreamlike club track. The bassline drives the mix under crisp hi-hats and floating pads, coupled with the airy vocals, resulting in that unmistakeably atmospheric sound the Hankat is widely known for.

Zed Bias (born Dave Jones) is an English electronic musician who operates within the UK garage and broken beat genres, both as a producer and a DJ. Jones has also released material under the pseudonym Maddslinky, and is half of the Phuturistix duo, as well as other side projects.

He runs the Sidestepper Recordings label.Zed Bias’ releases, which explore a more experimental or progressive side of the 2-step garage sound, have been hailed as a crucial element in the establishment of dubstep as a definable sound or genre.

Late Night Tales presents After Dark

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2013 by E.N.

Late Night Tales Presents After DarkLate Night Tales introduces a tangent to the timeline of the esteemed artist curated compilation series with ‘After Dark’: a DJ led, club focused mix which – as expert compiler Bill Brewster describes – “is dance music for people who know how to make love”.

After Dark. It’s New York at 4am with the lights off and the strobes flaring. It’s a Dalston basement with slow chugging basslines propelling a dancefloor. It’s a starlit night on the coast of Croatia with glittery girls and burnished boys grooving to 110bpm anthems. It’s great dance music with the Bosh-O-Meter turned to 0. If you want pounding trance, Lance, you’ve come to the wrong place. If you want a drop, break or explosion every 16 bars, then Swedish House Mafia is that way. This is music for dancers who know to move. It’s slow release carbs, with a startlingly high pleasure count. We’re starting slow and staying that way. Groove is in the art.

o+ Unearthed gems include a brilliant Padded Cell mix of the Doves that’s thus far remained in the CD wallets of the lucky few, a previously unreleased remix of the magnificent Twin Sister, a couple of unreleased tunes by Tad Wily and Beans & Company, plus the rare-as-hen’s-teeth mega disco tune ‘Love The Way You Love Me’ by Yorkshire’s finest diva-comic Marti Caine.

o+o Also along for the ride are a quartet of French beauties, namely TBS ft. Jamalski, a brilliantly off the wall Joakim production; there’s –M– (known to his maman as Mathieu Chedid, son of French chanteur Louis), whose‘Machistador’ comes replete with a fantastic Philip Zdar remix, while one of Bill’s heroes I:Cube delivers a terrific reworking of Karma’s ‘Beach Towel’. The Gaulish tour concludes with a contribution from François K, whose dubby remix of Herbest Moon is full of the recommended amounts of after dark atmosphere. The session closes with Asha Puthli’s dramatic and floaty‘Space Talk’, a brilliant song recorded by an Indian singer using some of the best session players from the UK, US and – why not? –Germany. LNT_pos

o+o+ Bill Brewster comes armed with a sensitivity and sense of occasion that few other DJs possess – and as go-to scribe of liner notes for every Late Night Tales release since day one, his association with the series is symbiotic. Originally a chef, a football pundit (co-editor of fanzine When Saturday Comes) and record collector, Bill began DJing in in the late 80s, but he cut his teeth playing Low Life warehouse parties in Harlem and the East Village and anyone hearing Bill today can see how these New York ‘roots’ shine through. For eclecticism, surprises, amazing unique music and sheer long-haul dedication to the dancefloor; Bill’s your man. His other life is as a writer. Together with long-term pal Frank Broughton, Bill is author of the definitive history of DJing, ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’, the uniquely sardonic DJ manual ‘How To DJ (Properly)’ and has contributed his acid Grimsby wit and encyclopaedic knowledge of music to just about every dance rag there is, not to mention The Guardian, Independent and Mail On Sunday.

Terror Danjah Presents Hardwired (Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 1, 2013 by E.N.

Terror Danjah Presents HardwiredFollowing on from the release of his much-lauded sophomore album, Dark Crawler on Hyperdub last September, Grime lynchpin Terror Danjah returns to the fold with a brand new label compilation from his own Hardrive Records imprint, entitled Hardwired. Featuring label highlights from JokerChampionBok Bok and Royal-T alongside previously unreleased original material and remixes from Kode 9,Falty DL,  Zed BiasSwindleD.O.K and PJam amongst others – Hardwired is an audio scrapbook of some of Terror Danjah’s favourite producers and peers all on one record.
Those familiar with the labels output thus far will be glad to see the inclusion Joker & Terror Danjah’s Gully Goon Estate (a collaborative take on the formers’ 2008 hit Gully Brook Lane), Champion’s ubiquitous UK Funky roller Lose Control and Bok Bok’s 80’s Electro meets Grime remix of Mz Bratt’s Selecta on the compilation.
One of the standout new tracks on Hardwired comes from resurgent Grime producer PJam, whose much sought after Arizona Skyz VIP progresses from Grime into Jungle territory in an epic 8-minute journey – the juxtaposition of rough drum breaks with melancholic harped synths shows just why he’s been talked up by the likes of Night Slugs and Butterz as one of the Grime scenes ones-to-watch for 2013.
Weighing in with fresh productions for the album are fellow Butterz brethren Swindle on the P-Funk infused Funktion, frequent Terror Danjah collaborator D.O.K with his ode to UK Garage Cardio and a dream collaboration between Zed Bias and Terror Danjah with a meeting of the musical minds on downtempo affair Iceberg History. 
Hyperdub boss Kode 9 also gets in the action too with the distorted and trippy Ice whilst NYC’s Falty DL chimes in with a colourful re-rub of one of Terror Danjah’s most notable instrumentals, Zumpi Huntah to round off an action packed array of tracks that more than make up for a quiet 2012 for the Hardrive label.
